If you have always wanted to have your own raspberry canes in the back yard, now is the time to think about planting them. Whether you want red, yellow, purple or black find out how to plant and care for your raspberries so you can harvest year after year. Grow them in a patch, a raised garden bed or even along a fence. If you plant different types you could harvest some for a couple of weeks in the summer and others in the fall.
This is my second year of growing raspberries and it is more involved than just planting, watering and picking fruit.
The maintenance is not complicated but timing is important.
My favorite treat is a washed raspberry with a single chocolate chip placed inside …. ok, a handful of these. I really love freezer jam made with blackberries. I feel that freezer jam has the most fresh taste when it comes to berry jams. Learn everything you need to know about planting and caring for raspberries so that you can start yours this spring. Extension UMN tells you all.
